Description:

(5.9+)Climb the big, right facing corner right of Raunchy to a thin, and poorly protected face traverse right to a flake in a big, burly roof with awkward moves and holds above and not the best pro for your second, who had better not take the fall. Traverse left to the Raunchy belay and expose your second to a big swing, or try something else less scary.

3 out of 5 stars Climbed in fading light

Last climb of the day, and last after-work climb of the season. Interesting when you can't see the features of the rock very well.
